Grand Daddy Hotel's Rooftop Airstream Trailer Park

Atop Cape Town's swanky Grand Daddy Hotel is a trailer park like no other. Think trailer parks and plush hotels don't mix? This cluster of Airstreams is more an experiment in conceptual interior design with each of the seven vintage trailers hosting a different theme.

Cape Town design studio Whatiftheworld directed the project, which tasked local artists with decorating a space with a motif of their choice. The concepts ranged from The Ballad of John & Yoko, adorned with a guitar and simple white interior, to Goldilocks and The Three Bears, which has a quaint storybook feel to it. While we're not not sure we could fall asleep in it, we love the dizzying floor-to-ceiling polka dot interior of Dorothy.


The two-person Airstreams are situated neatly around the rooftop bar, which is open for afternoon drinks to guests and just the plain curious alike.

Rooms in the hotel start at 945 rands ($90) and can be booked through Tablet. To reserve a trailer, see the contact info below.
